My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I became a Christian through the ministry of Young Life in the greater Washington, D.C. area and then was discipled at the University of North Dakota through Campus Crusade. My wife and I sensed a calling to teaching ministry and after doing seminary and serving as a youth pastor and solo pastor in Evangelical Free Churches, I eventually became a seminary professor and Christian mental health professional. God's been good to us!
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Too late for me in the comics industry! However, I love being an interdisciplinary kind of seminary teacher, ideally I'd totally focus on being "professor of theology and popular culture"!
Favorite Comic Creators:
